As the country prepares to host the prestigious G20 Summit, the capital city of Delhi is in its final stages of preparation. With the arrival of dignitaries on the horizon, Delhi is adorned like a radiant bride, while paramount importance is granted to robust security arrangements. Delhi Police is leaving no stone unturned to ensure the safety of the event. From managing traffic to coordinating with educational institutions and offices, meticulous planning is underway to ensure a seamless G20 Summit experience. The event is scheduled to take place at the State of Art Convention Complex, Pragati Maidan, from September 9 to September 10, 2023.
Gearing Up for G20 Summit: Delhi’s Final Preparations
Enhanced security measures are being implemented, and the route from New Delhi to the airport is under special monitoring, prioritizing the safety of the visiting dignitaries. High-ranking officers of Delhi Police are collaborating with central agencies to orchestrate this international-level event seamlessly. An increased number of traffic police personnel will be deployed to prevent road congestion.
Delhi’s Transformation: Radiant Bride for G20 Summit
Traffic Restrictions: Delhi Police recently conducted a full dress rehearsal for the G20 Summit. This rehearsal entailed a carcade procession that commenced from various hotels and concluded at Pragati Maidan. The Delhi Traffic Unit orchestrated the rehearsal route. During the summit days (September 8 to 10), no commercial vehicles will be permitted to enter Delhi. Commercial vehicles traversing Delhi will be directed towards the Eastern and Western Peripheral Expressways. To ensure smooth traffic flow, Delhi Police is in constant communication with neighboring states’ law enforcement agencies. However, city and interstate buses will continue their operations along the Ring Road.
Meticulous Planning: Ensuring a Seamless G20 Summit Experience
Permitted Vehicles: Essential goods transport vehicles, carrying commodities such as milk, vegetables, fruits, and medical supplies with valid permits, will be allowed entry into Delhi. The metro services will remain operational during the G20 Summit, with the exception of Supreme Court Metro Station. Passengers are encouraged to utilize the metro for travel to key locations such as the airport, railway station, bus stand, and hospitals. This proactive approach aims to minimize disruptions while accommodating the summit’s requirements.
